SUP. RIDLEY-THOMAS, CHAIRMAN: WE THANK YOU FOR YOUR ATTENTION. WE'LL NOW TURN TO THE MEMBERS OF THE PUBLIC WHO WISH TO BE HEARD ON ITEMS THAT THEY HAVE LISTED. THEY ARE IN THE FOLLOWING ORDER. WE ASK THAT YOU ADDRESS EXCLUSIVELY THOSE ISSUES FOR WHICH YOU HAVE SIGNED UP. ARNOLD SACHS, PATRICIA MULCAHEY, EDWARD CANAVAN, JOSEPH MAIZLISH, ERIC PREVEN, GENEVIEVE CLAVREUL. IF YOU'D COME FORWARD AND BE HEARD, WE'D APPRECIATE IT VERY MUCH.
ERIC PREVEN: WOULD YOU LIKE ME TO I BEGIN, SIR?
SUP. RIDLEY-THOMAS, CHAIRMAN: YOU MAY.
ERIC PREVEN: GOOD MORNING, IT'S ERIC PREVEN, THE COUNTY RESIDENT FROM DISTRICT 3. IT'S NICE TO HAVE A FULL HOUSE TODAY. ITEM NO. 1, SUPERVISOR KNABE'S EXTENDING THE SERVICE REQUIREMENT FOR THE COMMISSION FOR CHILDREN AND FAMILIES. ITEM NO. 48 IS FOR THE POLICY ROUNDTABLE FOR CHILDCARE AND DEVELOPMENT. WE'RE ADDING, ACTUALLY, THE TERM "DEVELOPMENT" TO THAT, WE'RE CHANGING THE ORDINANCE SLIGHTLY. AND I WAS A LITTLE PUZZLED BY THE VERY LAST LINE OF THE ORDINANCE CHANGE, WHICH IS WHERE WE ARE APPARENTLY CANCELING THE QUARTERLY REPORTS TO THE BOARD OF SUPERVISORS. THAT STRUCK ME AS LESS THAN ESPECIALLY FRIENDLY BECAUSE ONE OF THE ONLY WAYS THAT THE PUBLIC CAN SEE WHAT'S HAPPENING THERE IS WHEN THINGS COME BY THE BOARD'S ATTENTION AND WE CAN REVIEW THAT. ITEM NO. 5 HAS OBVIOUSLY CAPTURED THE ATTENTION OF AMERICA WITH THE REHAB ISSUES THAT HAVE BEEN EXPOSED HERE IN THE STATE AND COUNTY. THIS IS, TO BE CLEAR, SOME FRAUD HAS BEEN UNCOVERED. ANDERSON 360 AND THE C.N.N. PEOPLE WERE EARLY ON IT, BUT THIS IS STUFF THAT'S BEEN GOING ON FOR A LONG TIME, AND THEIR REPORT CLAIMS THAT IT'S GOING -- THE ACCOUNTABILITY ISSUES GO RIGHT UP TO THE TOP. AND THAT OF COURSE IS OMINOUS. WE ARE PLEASED THAT SUPERVISOR YAROSLAVSKY IS ASKING FOR SOME MORE INFORMATION ABOUT THAT AND EXPRESSING HIS INTEREST IN BEING NOTIFIED EARLY ON THAT. WE'RE CONCERNED WHY HE'S SO INTERESTED. BUT WE ARE VERY PLEASED. WE WANT TO MAKE SURE IT'S NOT ABOUT BUILDING UP CONTRACTS FOR OTHER PEOPLE, IT'S ABOUT GETTING TO THE BOTTOM OF IT, WHICH OF COURSE THERE IS SOME QUESTION. ITEM NO., I GUESS 11, IS SUPERVISOR MOLINA GENEROUSLY DONATING $17,000 TO THE FUND MANIA EVENT FOR THE D.P.S.S. THE ISSUES WITH PUBLIC WORKS TODAY ARE ITEM 38 AND 41. ITEM 38 CAUGHT MY ATTENTION. THERE'S A -- I DON'T WANT TO GO TOO WONKY HERE, BUT STANDARD CONTRACTING CONCEPTS CALL OUT TIME AND MATERIALS AND THEN ALSO MARKUP. BUT IN THIS PARTICULAR CASE, THERE'S A LACK OF QUALITY CONTROL. I WOULD JUST REALLY TAKE A CLOSER LOOK AT ITEM NO. 38. ITEM NO. 41 IS VERY INTERESTING. THIS IS SOME ACCESS ROADWORK THAT'S BEEN ADDED TO A PROJECT. IT WAS BID ON BY A GROUP CALLED ENVIRONMENTAL CONSULTANTS INC., NOT THE ONE THAT HAS A FANCY WEBSITE. AND THEY BID VERY LOW. THEY WERE 150,000 UNDER ALL THE BIDDING. NOW THIS IS 19 PERCENT OVER. THE PREVIOUS UPGRADE OF 235 GRAND PREVIOUS TO THIS 400,000 UPGRADE WAS NOT NOTICED TO THIS BOARD. I'M JUST CONCERNED ABOUT HOW THAT STUFF IS HAPPENING, I KNOW THAT WE'RE TRYING TO GET A HANDLE ON IT, BUT I'M WORRIED. ITEM NO. 42 HAS TO DO WITH THE VICTIMS RIGHTS GROUP. THE D.A. IS GETTING ACTUALLY A LOT OF MONEY, 3 PLUS MILLION DOLLARS TO WORK WITH VICTIMS, WE THINK THAT'S APPROPRIATE NATURALLY. ONE OF THE CONCERNS, THOUGH, IS WHAT ARE THE NUMBERS? I MEAN HOW MANY PEOPLE, OF WHAT TYPE OF VICTIM ARE BEING HELD? IT WAS NOT IN THE ITEM. AND IT SEEMS AS IF IT SHOULD. ITEM NO. 44 I JUST WANT TO ASK THIS BOARD TO GO AWAY FROM DRUG ENFORCEMENT AGENCY WORK. SPENDING $350,000 IN AN AREA THAT I HAVE TO TELL YOU TIME AND TIME AGAIN THE GROUP CALLED LEAP, LAW ENFORCEMENT AGAINST PROHIBITION OF PROOF, THIS HARSH APPROACH TO MARIJUANA CULTIVATION IN OUR STATE IS NOT USEFUL. IT DOESN'T WORK AND IT FILLS OUR PRISON WITH LOW- LEVEL GUYS. SO LET'S GO IN THE OPPOSITE DIRECTION. LET'S SAY NO TO THE D.E.A. MONEY IF WE CAN. THANK YOU.
SUP. RIDLEY-THOMAS, CHAIRMAN: SIR, MA'AM?
JOSEPH MAIZLISH: MAY I ASK, MR. CHAIRMAN, HOW DOES THIS WORK IF I MAKE MY COMMENT NOW ABOUT ONE OF THE ITEMS? I'M SIGNED UP ALSO FOR ANOTHER ONE, HOW DOES THIS --
SUP. RIDLEY-THOMAS, CHAIRMAN: SIR YOU HAVE THREE MINUTES TO SPEAK. AND YOU ARE LISTED FOR 13 AND 44.
JOSEPH MAIZLISH: RIGHT. BUT 13 WAS INADVERTENT. I WAS REALLY INTERESTED IN 14. BUT I'LL GO AHEAD.
SUP. RIDLEY-THOMAS, CHAIRMAN: THANK YOU.
JOSEPH MAIZLISH: FOR THE 14, I WAS GOING TO SPEAK IN FAVOR. I'M GLAD THAT IT'S PASSED. THIS IS THE C.D.C.R. PROGRAM FOR SOME WOMEN ON PAROLE. AND I THINK THIS IS EXCELLENT. I'M SPEAKING ALSO ON BEHALF OF DIANA ZUNIGA OF CURB WHO SAYS THAT LET'S BY ALL MEANS SUPPORT ALL KINDS OF NEW FORMATS FOR DEALING WITH PEOPLE AND SUPERVISION. A CONCERN IS, IS THIS BEING DONE IN A COMMUNITY THAT'S MOST IMPACTED BY THE -- BY INCARCERATION? THAT WOULD BE SOMETHING TO BEAR IN MIND. AND IS IT BEING DONE EFFICIENTLY? BUT OTHERWISE THAT'S SOMETHING THAT WE ARE PLEASED TO SEE. AND IT COULD BE MULTIPLIED ACTUALLY BY USE OF YOUR CHOICE ON USE OF SOME OF THE A.B.109 MONEY, TO EXPAND GRADUALLY SUPERVISION. MY COMMENTS ON NO. 44 -- AND I HAVE SOME PAGES TO, A PAGE TO GIVE EACH OF YOU FOLKS, NOW IS THE TIME OF A LOT OF FLUX IN THE CONCEPT OF HOW TO HANDLE DRUG AND ITS POSSESSIONS. I UNDERSTAND THAT 44 IS ABOUT CULTIVATION AND ERADICATION OF CULTIVATION. IT'S COMING, ODDLY ENOUGH, FROM THE VERY SAME DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE WHOSE LEADER YESTERDAY SAID THAT HE WANTS TO DEEMPHASIZE DRUG PROSECUTION AND SENTENCING PARTICULARLY. SO THINGS ARE CHANGING ABOUT THAT. THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA LEGISLATURE, THE SENATE HAS PASSED S.B.649 TO MAKE WOBBLERS A CHOICE OF FELONY OR MISDEMEANOR PROSECUTION FOR THE POSSESSION OF MANY KINDS OF DRUGS. YOU'VE HEARD THE SHERIFF'S REPRESENTATIVE IN THEIR REPORT ON RE-ALIGNMENT SAY THAT THE MOST COMMON ARRESTS OF THE 1170-H PEOPLE, WHO ARE SUBSTANTIAL CHUNK OF THE JAIL POPULATION, IS FOR THE POSSESSION OF CONTROL SUBSTANCES. SIMPLE POSSESSION OF CONTROLLED SUBSTANCES. IN IS AN AREA OF CHANGE. IT'S NOT A GOOD IDEA TO DEVOTE SOME OF THE ATTENTION. IT'S LIKE MOONLIGHTING OF SOME OF OUR SHERIFF'S DEPUTIES FOR AN EXTRA JOB WORKING AS PART OF AN ARMY FOR THE D.E.A., AND IT'S POSSIBLY ANY PLACE IN THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA. THE CONTRACT DOESN'T SAY "IN THIS COUNTY." SO THAT'S SOMETHING, LET'S NOT DIVERT THAT. LET'S FOCUS OUR ATTENTION ON THOSE MATTERS THAT SOME OF THE SUPERVISORS MENTION TO US REGULARLY, THE HARMFUL AND DANGEROUS PEOPLE THAT WE'RE REALLY WORRIED ABOUT THEIR RECIDIVISM, THE PREDATORS, ET CETERA. THAT SHOULD TAKE OUR ATTENTION, THE ATTENTION OF LAW ENFORCEMENT, THE JUSTICE SYSTEM AND, WHERE NECESSARY, THE JAILS.
SUP. RIDLEY-THOMAS, CHAIRMAN: THANK YOU FOR YOUR TESTIMONY.
JOSEPH MAIZLISH: I'LL DISTRIBUTE THESE PAPERS.
SUP. RIDLEY-THOMAS, CHAIRMAN: INDEED. DR. CLAVREUL, PLEASE?
DR. GENEVIEVE CLAVREUL: GOOD MORNING, BOARD OF SUPERVISORS. I WOULD LIKE TO START BY 10 ABOUT THE CHROMIUM 6. IT WAS A VERY GOOD STUDY PUBLISHED IN THE L.A. TIMES A FEW WEEKS AGO DEALING THAT MOST OF THE BOTTLED WATER DID CONTAIN CHROMIUM 6 EXCEPT FOR EVIAN, WHICH IS MY FAVORITE WATER, AND ANOTHER ONE WHICH I CANNOT FIND WHICH ONE IT IS NOW IS NOT ACCESSIBLE. BUT I THINK IT WOULD BE NICE TO ADVISE THE PUBLIC WHICH BOTTLED WATER DO CONTAIN CHROMIUM 6 BECAUSE IT'S A VERY NOT NICE TOXIN. ON ITEM 23, I TALKED ABOUT THAT ITEM LAST WEEK ALREADY. AND I'M STILL CONCERNED THAT WE ARE OBLIGING THE EMPLOYEES FROM IN-HOME SERVICES TO NOT WORK AS MANY HOURS IN ORDER TO RECEIVE HEALTHCARE. I THINK IT'S SO SAD AFTER I HAVE FOUGHT FOR WEEKS TO GET AN INCREASE IN PAY. AND I WAS HOPING THAT THAT WILL GO AWAY. I LOOK THAT ONE CHANGE WAS MADE AND ACTUALLY IN 2014 THEY WILL ONLY LOSE 6 HOURS VERSUS 8 HOURS, WHICH IS A LITTLE BIT BETTER. ON ITEM 25 ABOUT THE D.H.S., I WAS A LITTLE CONCERNED ABOUT THE FIGURES BECAUSE THEY WERE NOT VERY PRECISE. AND OF COURSE WHEN IT COMES TO DR. KATZ, MY TRUST RELATIONSHIP IS QUITE NOT THE BEST. AND I ACTUALLY RESPONDED TO AN ARTICLE IN "THE PASADENA STAR- NEWS" HAVING TO DO ON MICRA AND ALL THE MISINFORMED EFFECT ON THE HEALTHCARE BENEFITS. AND IT'S SAD TO HAVE HAD DR. KATZ MISREPRESENT THE FACT WHEN HE GAVE THE WHITE PAPER. AND IT WAS EVEN SADDER WHEN NONE OF YOU RESPONDED TO MY LETTER SHOWING HOW COME THAT WHITE PAPER WAS MISLEADING? SO I HOPE THAT AT ONE POINT SOME OF YOU WILL FIGHT AND USE A NEW STATISTIC TO DEAL WITH THAT. AND FOR HIM TO TALK ABOUT ETHICS, ABOUT DRUGS, I THINK IS A JOKE. SO THANK YOU FOR YOUR ATTENTION.
SUP. RIDLEY-THOMAS, CHAIRMAN: THANK YOU, DR. CLAVREUL. I SEE NO OTHER PERSONS CURRENTLY AT THE TABLE TO BE HEARD. MR. SACHS, I THINK YOU'VE HAD A CONVERSATION. YOU WILL NOT BE AFFORDED THE OPPORTUNITY TO BE HEARD. YOU'VE BEEN ACCOMMODATED. YOU'VE BEEN REQUESTED TO ACCOMMODATE WITH THE RULES OF THIS BOARD, AND TO THE EXTENT THAT THIS IS THE CASE. ARE THERE OTHER PERSONS WHO WISH TO BE HEARD? I'M NOT GOING TO ENGAGE YOU ON THIS. COOPERATION BEGETS COOPERATION. JUST KNOW THAT.
ARNOLD SACHS: YOU HAVE A GRAFFITI ABATEMENT --
SUP. RIDLEY-THOMAS, CHAIRMAN: THIS IS NOT VERNON. THIS IS THE COUNTY BOARD OF SUPERVISORS. KENNETH HALL QUALITY. MR. KATZ -- I MEAN MR. SACHS, YOU'VE BEEN ACCOMMODATED. SERGEANTS, IF YOU WOULD BE KIND ENOUGH TO CAUSE MR. SACHS TO UNDERSTAND THAT HE HAS TO STAND DOWN, IT WOULD BE APPRECIATED. THANK YOU. WE'LL PROCEED TO THE BALANCE OF THE SPEAKERS. IS THERE ANYONE ELSE WISHING TO BE HEARD? THAT CLOSES THE PUBLIC COMMENT SECTION ON THOSE ITEMS BEFORE US. MADAM EXECUTIVE OFFICER?
SACHI HAMAI, EXEC. OFFICER: MR. CHAIRMAN, MEMBERS OF THE BOARD, IF WE COULD APPROVE THE FOLLOWING ITEMS: ITEM NO. 1-D, 1, 9, 10, 11, 13, 15, 16, 17, 18. 19 WILL BE CONTINUED ONE WEEK. 20, 23, 26, 27, 33, 34, 35, 38, 41, 42, 44, 45 AND 48. THOSE ITEMS ARE BEFORE YOU.
SUP. RIDLEY-THOMAS, CHAIRMAN: IT'S BEEN PROPERLY MOVED BY SUPERVISOR KNABE AND SECONDED BY SUPERVISOR MOLINA. I SEE NO OBJECTIONS, THEREFORE THAT WILL BE A UNANIMOUS VOTE. THANK YOU.
SACHI HAMAI, EXEC. OFFICER: ITEM NO. 5 I BELIEVE WE WERE HOLDING, YOU'RE UP NEXT.
SUP. RIDLEY-THOMAS, CHAIRMAN: ITEM NO. 5. YES. ITEM NO. 5 AS YOU WILL NOTE IN THE AGENDA, AND WE HAVE PERSONS WHO WISH TO BE HEARD ON THE ITEM?
SACHI HAMAI, EXEC. OFFICER: NO. THEY HAVE ALREADY SPOKEN.
SUP. RIDLEY-THOMAS, CHAIRMAN: ALL RIGHT. THANK YOU. SUPERVISOR YAROSLAVSKY HAS BROUGHT FORWARD ITEM NO. 5 REGARDING THE DRUG MEDI-CAL PROGRAM. IT IS A SIGNIFICANT ITEM. I SUPPORT THE ITEM WITH THE FOLLOWING AMENDMENTS. [OFF MIC.] YOU'LL NOTE THE DRUG MEDI-CAL PROGRAM, OTHERWISE KNOWN AS D.M.C., THE STATE-RUN PROGRAM THAT PROVIDES CRITICAL SERVICES TO INDIVIDUALS WITH VARIOUS ALCOHOL AND DRUG ABUSE PROBLEMS. TAXPAYERS' DOLLARS ALLOCATED TO THE PROGRAM MUST BE SAFEGUARDED. THE STATE'S DEPARTMENT OF HEALTHCARE SERVICES' RECENT EFFORTS TO SUSPEND NUMEROUS PROVIDERS, HOWEVER INADVERTENTLY PLACES THOUSANDS OF PATIENTS AT RISK FOR DISRUPTIONS OF CARE. THIS IS A CRITICALLY IMPORTANT MATTER BECAUSE D.M.C. REPRESENTS SOME 44 PERCENT OF THE TOTAL DRUG AND ALCOHOL PROGRAMS, WHICH THE DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC HEALTH MUST ADMINISTER. AND EFFORTS TO IMPROVE AND SAFEGUARD PROGRAM INTEGRITY AND QUALITY MUST OCCUR ACROSS ALL COUNTY-ADMINISTERED ALCOHOL AND DRUG PROGRAMS. WE THEREFORE ASK THAT THE AUDITOR-CONTROLLER ENGAGE AS AN AUGMENTATION OF SUPERVISOR YAROSLAVSKY'S MOTION, WE WISH TO INSTRUCT THE DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC HEALTH TO WORK WITH COUNTY COUNSEL TO REPORT BACK IN A SPECIFIED PERIOD OF TIME WITH ESTIMATES OF THE NUMBER OF PATIENTS AFFECTED. WE SEEK ESSENTIALLY TO GET MORE DATA THAN WE CURRENTLY HAVE. THIS IS HIGHLY, HIGHLY IMPORTANT. SECONDLY, WE INSTRUCT THIS CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER AND COUNTY COUNSEL TO WORK WITH THE DEPARTMENTS SO NAMED TO DEVELOP THE APPROPRIATE REPORT BACK ON THE PLAN THAT ENSURES PARENTS IN DEPENDENCY CASES AND YOUTH AND ADULTS ON PAROLE AND PROBATION ARE NOT REFERRED TO SUSPENDED PROVIDERS. IN OTHER WORDS, THE THRUST OF THE AMENDMENT TO THE MOTION IS ESSENTIALLY TO MAKE SURE THAT WE DON'T TRIP OVER OUR OWN FEET HERE BECAUSE THE CONSEQUENCES ARE NOT INSIGNIFICANT. AND TO THE EXTENT THAT THAT IS THE CASE, I'M COMPLETELY CONFIDENT THAT WE WANT TO DO THIS WELL. WE WANT TO DO IT RIGHT. I OFFER THIS AS A FRIENDLY AMENDMENT TO THE MAIN MOTION. IT'S MOVED AND SECONDED. ARE THERE ANY OBJECTIONS? SUPERVISOR YAROSLAVSKY WISHES TO BE HEARD.
SUP. YAROSLAVSKY: I WOULD JUST ASK, MR. CHAIRMAN.
SUP. RIDLEY-THOMAS, CHAIRMAN: YES, SIR.
SUP. YAROSLAVSKY: I DON'T HAVE ANY OBJECTION TO YOUR AMENDMENT, BUT JUST MAKE IT 30 DAYS INSTEAD OF 15 SO IT TRACKS WITH THE MAIN MOTION.
SUP. RIDLEY-THOMAS, CHAIRMAN: IT SHOULD COHERE. 30. YES.
SUP. YAROSLAVSKY: THAT'S FINE. THANK YOU.
SUP. RIDLEY-THOMAS, CHAIRMAN: ALL RIGHT. ARE THERE ANY OTHER QUESTIONS OR COMMENTS TO BE MADE ON THIS ITEM? SEEING NONE, PLEASE RECORD A UNANIMOUS VOTE ON THE MOTION AS AMENDED. MADAM EXECUTIVE OFFICER?
SACHI HAMAI, EXEC. OFFICER: MR. CHAIRMAN, SUPERVISOR MOLINA IS HOLDING ITEM NO. 43, IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO CALL THAT ITEM UP AGAIN.
SUP. RIDLEY-THOMAS, CHAIRMAN: SUPERVISOR?
SUP. MOLINA: MR. CHAIRMAN AND MEMBERS, UNFORTUNATELY I'VE BEEN HOLDING THIS FOR A NUMBER OF YEARS. SO I HAVE ASKED MR. FUJIOKA TO HELP ME BRING AN END TO IT. FOR SOME REASON THE SHERIFF CAN'T EVEN DO PROCUREMENT AND CONTRACTING AT THIS POINT. SO THIS IS A CONTRACT FOR ELECTRONIC MONITORING. AND FOR WHATEVER REASON, THE SHERIFF, SINCE 2009, HAS NOT BEEN ABLE TO GET THEIR ACT TOGETHER TO PUT THIS IN PLACE. SO WHAT WE'RE GOING TO DO IS AMEND THE BOARD LETTER TO INCLUDE THE UPDATED R.F.P. TIMELINE THAT WAS ORGANIZED BY OUR C.E.O., MR. FUJIOKA, AND I THINK THAT'S HELPFUL BECAUSE IT SEEMS AS THOUGH THE SHERIFF CAN'T SEEM TO GET THIS DONE. UNDER THE NEW TIMELINE, SUPPOSEDLY THEY WOULD BE ABLE TO DELIVER TO US WHAT HAS TAKEN THEM OVER FOUR YEARS NOW, FIVE, MAYBE? THE SIMPLICITY OF A CONTRACT SO THAT THEY ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR THIS MONITORING. UP TO NOW, THEY'VE BEEN PIGGYBACKING ON THE PROBATION DEPARTMENT CONTRACT. SO I APPRECIATE THE SCHEDULE. THE SCHEDULE HAS THE SIMPLE ITEMS OF YOU WALK IT TO COUNTY COUNSEL. COUNTY COUNSEL WALKS IT BACK TO THE CONTRACTOR. THE CONTRACTOR WALKS IT BACK TO COUNTY COUNSEL. THEN THEY WALK IT OVER TO THE SHERIFF AND THEY REVIEW IT. AND THEN IT WALKS BACK TO THE CONTRACTOR WHO SIGNS A LETTER OF INTENT. THEN IT GOES BACK AND IT GETS SUBMITTED AS A BOARD LETTER THAT'S COMPLETED BY THE MANAGER, COUNSEL, C.I.O. AND REVIEW ANALYSIS AND THEN IT'S SUBMITTED BACK TO US. AND THEN IT GOES TO OUR CAR MEETING BECAUSE OUR DEPUTIES HAVE TO REVIEW THIS. AND HOPEFULLY IT'S GOING TO BE BACK ON OUR AGENDA, AS I UNDERSTAND, ON SEPTEMBER THE 17TH. IS THAT CORRECT? ALL RIGHT. IT'S UNFORTUNATE THAT WE NEED TO DO THIS, BUT I GUESS THAT'S THE ONLY WAY I CAN GET THE SHERIFF TO MOVE ON IT SINCE HE HASN'T BEEN ABLE TO DO IT SINCE 2009. SO I'M ASKING FOR THOSE AMENDMENTS. SO I'M ASKING FOR REVISION OF 30 DAYS VERSUS ANOTHER SIX MONTHS THAT THEY WANT. MORE THAN LIKELY, THEY WON'T COMPLETE IT. SO THEY'LL BE BACK AGAIN TO ASK FOR ANOTHER EXTENSION, RIGHT?
GLEN DRAGOVICH: NO, WE WILL NOT BE BACK.
SUP. MOLINA: IT WILL NOT BE BACK. HOW NICE. ALL RIGHT. SO THAT IS THE AMENDMENT WITH THE NEW TIMELINE AND THE EXTENSION FOR THE 30 DAYS TO BE BACK ON OUR BOARD. AND THEY WILL COMPLETE SOMETHING THAT HAS TAKEN THEM UP TO 4-1/2 YEARS TO DO HOPEFULLY WITHIN THE NEXT 30 DAYS. AND EMBARRASSING THEM, TO BOOT. SO THAT IS MY MOTION.
SUP. RIDLEY-THOMAS, CHAIRMAN: ALL RIGHT. THE MOTION IS BEFORE US. ARE THERE ANY QUESTIONS OR ANY ADDITIONAL COMMENTS ON THE MOTION AS OFFERED BY SUPERVISOR MOLINA? IS THERE A SECOND? IT'S BEEN SECONDED BY SUPERVISOR ANTONOVICH. ANY FURTHER DISCUSSION ON THE MATTER THAT IS BEFORE US AT THIS POINT ON ITEM NO. 43? BEEN MOVED FORTH WITHOUT OBJECTION, THAT WILL BE THE ORDER.
SUP. MOLINA: THANK YOU.
SUP. RIDLEY-THOMAS, CHAIRMAN: THANK YOU.
SACHI HAMAI, EXEC. OFFICER: MR. CHAIRMAN, YOU MAY WANT TO BEGIN WITH SPECIALS AND ADJOURNMENTS?
SUP. RIDLEY-THOMAS, CHAIRMAN: ALL RIGHTY. LET ME BEGIN BY ADJOURNING IN THE MEMORY OF MISS LOIS HILL HALE, BORN IN DETROIT, MICHIGAN. AND SHE PASSED ON AUGUST 8 AT THE AGE OF 76. SHE WAS A MEMBER OF THE INGLEWOOD UNIFIED SCHOOL DISTRICT BOARD OF TRUSTEES, AT ONE POINT SHE WAS THE PRESIDENT. SHE DID RUN FOR THE STATE ASSEMBLY, THE 50TH DISTRICT, AS A WRITE-IN CANDIDATE, WAS UNSUCCESSFUL IN THAT PURSUIT. LOIS HILL HALE WAS THE OWNER OF A PUBLICATION KNOWN AS SCOOP NEWSPAPER, WELL-KNOWN IN PARTS OF OUR CITY AND REGION THAT IS LOS ANGELES. AND THEN SHE ULTIMATELY WORKED FOR THEN STATE SENATOR DIANE E. WATSON FOR APPROXIMATELY EIGHT YEARS. WELL KNOWN TO MANY AS AN ADVOCATE AND AS A STANDUP PERSON FOR A RANGE OF IMPORTANT ISSUES IN OUR COMMUNITIES. MS. HALE IS SURVIVED BY A HOST OF FAMILY, MEMBERS AND FRIENDS WHO WILL INDEED MISS HER. LOIS HILL HALE. SUPERVISOR YAROSLAVSKY?
SUP. YAROSLAVSKY: MR. CHAIRMAN, I'D LIKE TO ASK THAT WE ADJOURN AND I THINK MR. KNABE WANTS TO JOIN ME IN THIS ONE. ADJOURN IN THE MEMORY OF GRANT ADAMSON. LONGTIME RESIDENT OF OUR DISTRICT, A DESCENDENT OF THE FAMILY KNOWN AS MALIBU'S FIRST FAMILY, WHO DIED LAST WEEK TRAGICALLY IN A HOT AIR BALLOON ACCIDENT IN SWITZERLAND. IT ALSO SEVERELY INJURED HIS WIFE AND TWO DAUGHTERS ALONG WITH THE BALLOON'S PILOT. GRANT WAS THE VICE PRESIDENT AT THE MARIPOSA LAND COMPANY ADMINISTERING HIS FAMILY'S PROPERTY HOLDINGS, SPANNING MORE THAN A CENTURY. A MEMBER OF THE PEPPERDINE UNIVERSITY'S CREST BOARD OF COMMUNITY SUPPORTERS AMONG OTHER CIVIC INVOLVEMENTS. THE ADAMSON FAMILY, OF COURSE, IS WELL KNOWN IN THE MALIBU AREA. THEY WERE THE FAMILY THAT DONATED THE LAND FOR PEPPERDINE UNIVERSITY AND MANY OTHER THINGS IN WHICH THEY WERE INVOLVED. THEY WERE PART AND PARCEL OF EVERY ELEMENT OF THE HISTORY OF THE MALIBU COMMUNITY GOING BACK FOR WELL OVER A CENTURY. GRANT IS SURVIVED BY HIS WIFE, WHO IS RECOVERING FROM THE BALLOON ACCIDENT, HIS WIFE TERRY JILL ADAMSON, A LAW PROFESSOR AT PEPPERDINE UNIVERSITY, AND THE COUPLE'S TWO DAUGHTERS WHO ATTEND PEPPERDINE AS STUDENTS. GRANT WAS, AS ONE OF MY STAFF MEMBERS SAID, A REAL NICE GUY, AND EASY TO WORK WITH FOR A PERSON OF HIS REACH AND SPAN IN THAT COMMUNITY, EVERYTHING HE DID WAS IN THE BEST INTEREST OF THE COMMUNITY. HE WILL BE SORELY MISSED IN THE MALIBU AND WEST L.A. COUNTY AREA.
